In the title complex, [Sn(C7H6F)2(C8H5N2S3)2], including the weak Sn-N interactions, the SnIV atom is situated in a distorted trans-octahedral geometry, and the equatorial plane is defined by two chelating 4-phenyl-5-sulfanylidene-4,5-dihydro-1,3,4-thiodiazole-2-thiolate ligands. The apical positions are occupied by two C atoms of 4-fluorobenzyl groups.
